100 meters is 1/4 of the track.

2 and 3/4

7 and a half laps

for a 10,000 metre track event, its about 25 laps of a 400m track.

3.7 laps around a 1/4 mile track 3.3 laps for 1500m

If you are saying that the track is .125 of a mile, then it would be a 200 meter track. In that case, eight laps around the track would be a mile.

6 kilometers is 6000 meters. On a 400 meter track, that would be 15 laps.

An outdoor track is usually 400 meters, so half a lap.

On a standard 400 meter track, it would be 2800 meters.

An Olympic size track is 400 meters. That would mean there are 2.5 laps for 1 kilometer, and 25 laps around a 400 meter track would equal 10 kilometers.

Approximately 6 times sir.

each lap is .25 miles, so 1.6 miles would be a little over between 6.25 and 6.50 laps.

Depends. Is it a distance run? Or a fast run? If it is distance, the stamina runner would win. If it was a track, then the speed runner would win.

The straight would be 50m.

You would run high school track much like any other track. On a 400 meter track, running counter-clock wise.

The stagger in the 400 meter dash are the different starting points around the first curve that each runner lines up on. Because the track is oval, having everyone start at the same line would be unfair to those running in the lanes outside of lane 1. Basically, the further out you would start, the further you would have to run. for example, By having the starting point for each lane start futher up ,or staggered, around the first turn ensures that all the runners are running the same distance.

If it is 1500m, then it is 1500m, no matter how long the track is. If you mean how many laps, that would be 3.75 laps on a 400m track, and 7.5 on a 200m track.

Around a track that is 400m around to run 1.5 miles you would have to run 6 laps. 4 laps is one mile.Since 400 meters is a little over 8 feet short of a quarter mile, you would actually have to go about 50 feet past the 6 lap mark for a more precise mile and a half.

My guess would be at least 12.5 laps around a 400 meter track, because a varsity race is usually 5k.

I assume you mean all of the planets to align in one straight line. This would be extremely unlikely, since the movement of the individual planets is more or less independent of one another. Also, the planets are not all exactly in the same plane. ================================= Put nine runners at the starting line of a typical oval track. They take their marks, they get set, they're all in line across the track, and when the starter fires his pistol, the nine runners all explode off the blocks simultaneously. The runners have a vastly diverse range of abilities. The time it takes each one to circle the track is nowhere near the time it takes any of the others: Runner #1 takes 88 days to circle the track. Runner #2 takes 225 days to circle the track. Runner #3 takes 365 days to circle the track. Runner #4 takes 687 days to circle the track. Runner #5 takes 11.9 years to circle the track. Runner #6 takes 29.5 years to circle the track. Runner #7 takes 84.3 years to circle the track. Runner #8 takes 164.8 years to circle the track. Runner #9 takes 248 years to circle the track. How often do you think it would happen that all of them would line up across the same part of the track again, all at the same time ?

u would have to run around the track once

5000 meters would be 12.5 laps around an Olympic size (400 meters) track.

300 meters. They stagger the starting lines

Hey, interesting question.... well i run track (100m in 10.9ish, 400m in 48 secs , 800m in 1:50 and 1600m in 4:07. So, i would imagine the average time of the intire population at 18 years (male) would be somewere around 13.6-14.5. However, for a good 100 meter runner of 18 years, assuming non-competitive.. would be around 12.6-13.4. Hope i helped!
